Happy July 4th!

Today is America’s birthday, celebrated each year with lots of fireworks, barbecues and days spent by the pool or at the beach. Usually it is a relaxing and fun day.

And that point is worth noting.  The America that I love is good natured. It is a place that nurtures good will and believes that people — all of us — deserve to “pursue happiness” as Jefferson wrote.

So with that in mind, I offer one of the most fun celebrations of the fourth of July —  by Jean Shephard. Enjoy!
